Founded in 1896 the Tamdhu Distillery was created by a group of assemblers who were looking to engage in their own whisky production. Situated in Knockando, Banffshire, Scotland the distilleries name comes from the Gaelic for little dark hill. The distillery operated for many years before being closed between 1927 and 1947. Boasting 3 wash stills and 3 spirits stills the distillery produces around 4 million litres of pure alcohol per year, this is not a small distillery. Owned and operated by Ian MacLeod Distillers it is primarily used for producing blended whisky such as Famous Grouse, J & B and Cutty Sark. The majority of its single malt is now being matured in European oak or American oak ex sherry casks.

This batch strength offering is made from carefully selected casks resulting in a higher proportion of first-fill Oloroso Sherry Casks, giving a rich colour and bold complex flavour – bottled at a cask strength of 58.8% ABV
